COMMERCE - At last report, authorities were still looking for a man who allegedly abducted his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter from the parking lot of a Commerce hospital late Friday afternoon.

An Amber Alert was issued around 5:15 p.m. for Paisley Rebekah Mealor. The child was reported kidnapped from the parking lot at Northridge Hospital, apparently at the hands of 41-year-old Michael Troy Wilburn.

A report on fox 5 News in Atlanta said Commerce Police issued the Amber Alert and the child was found about 45 minutes later in nearby Madison County. She was in the suspect's abandoned van. She was unharmed.

Wilburn is believed to have fled the scene on foot or perhaps picked up by someone else. Police described him as a career criminal.
